Ooey Gooey Cereal Snack Mix

We lived about 20 minutes from my grandmas house growing up in California.  We had a dinner at her house at least once a week.  It is funny how certain foods will forever remind me of her. She is still as fabulous of a cook as ever!

One of the foods she is famous for making is this amazing snack mix.  Any family gatherings, reunions, camping trips… you can almost guarantee this will be there.  No matter how many times this snack mix makes its appearance, we NEVER get sick of it!  Its gooeyness and deliciousness always keep the hands coming back for another helping!  Our family adores this recipe and I know yours will too!  It is SO easy to make and throw together!

    I love making this. Almost hate to have to share it with others… LOL I add a 1/2 tsp of almond extract to the sugar/corn syrup mixture after taking it off the burner. Think I might be having to make some this week. :O)
